Saab 9000SAAB 9000 — the first car of a class E of the Swedish company SAAB which was issued from 1984 to 1998. Subsequently it is replaced with model 9-5.
The basis 9000 was formed by the Type Four chassis on the basis of which Fiats Croma, Lancia Thema and Alfa Romeo 164 are also constructed. Externally Thema and Croma are very similar on 9000 while with Alfa Romeo they are united by only the general chassis. Many body details 9000, Thema and Croma are interchanged. The exterior of Saab 9000 is developed by the designer Dzhordzhetto Giugiaro.
In spite of the fact that total length 9000 less than length 900, "nine-thousand" has big wheel base, and the salon is more spacious than it. Unlike 900, the lock of ignition is on a steering column, but not in the tunnel between forward seats.
